You're probably right about me not understanding your post. I definitely DO NOT understand how the entire catalog of Grateful Dead tunes(originals and covers)can be classified as "just songs" and the total 30 year musicality of the ever changing entity known as Grateful Dead can be reduced to three tunes played in a three year period.

As I get older I find myself having less patience for the bulk of their catalog.I'm now about 50 shows short of listening and reviewing their output from Keith's first show through 12/31/79.What I've come to realize is that about 80% of their work is mediocre to awful,10% is good,5% very good and 5% is as good as music get's.As far as the 30 years go only 68'-78' really hold any interest for me.So I have no trouble with limiting what I listen to now to a small sampling out of a large pool,being as that I have wasted a tremendous amount of time listening to a whole bunch of crap they have thrown at us has an audience over that 30 year span.

As I said earlier..."...different strokes for different folks".

I have never listened to a show that I couldn't find something positive and entertaining. I'm not saying it is all good, but there is good in all of it.

Valid points that I agree with user unknown,can't swear to the 90's though.
